Reassurance, gender and growth scan (12 weeks to term)
Lasting about 30 minutes, this abdominal ultrasound scan can be performed at any time after the first 12 weeks of your pregnancy.
It can reassure you about the position, size and well-being of your baby, and is also used to check your baby’s growth.
In a growth scan, we’ll assess the baby’s vital organs as well as weight. We’ll also monitor the blood flow across the umbilical cord from the placenta.
To determine the sex of your baby, we can perform a gender scan after 18 weeks’ gestation.
With this scan, you will be given a report, up to five black and white prints and a CD of images.
